The Patriots just submitted an offer sheet on Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders. some actual restricted free agent movement. Wow


http://twitter.com/JasonLaCanfora/statuses/321991206609489921

He was signed to a 1-year deal.

The Patriots will need to pay the Steelers a 3rd round pick if the Steelers chose not to match the offer sheet.



***Update***
The Steelers have $2,069,760 in available cap space as of April 4 and the team has 5 days to match the offer the Patriots made to Sanders.

And PITT has until Monday to match the offer sheet or take NE's 3rd-rd pick. Again, money won't be determining factor. Money will be modest.

Quote:
The pick in play relating to Emmanuel Sanders is #91. The Patriots would be left with 4 picks (29, 59, 226, 235) if offer not matched.

Early rumbling is that #Patriots offer sheet is $4 million for one year #steelers

Expect Steelers to match Patriots offer sheet and retain WR Emmanual Sanders. He's vital after loss of Mike Wallace and offer easy to match

Quote:
What could prevent Steelers from matching Pats on Emmanual Sanders? Only 3 teams have less cap space. Pick No. 91 may tempt GM Kevin Colbert


http://twitter.com/Edwerderespn/statuses/322009542579859456

***Update***
Quote:
Emmanuel Sanders deal is 1 year, $2.5 mill. Many believe its a clever ploy by NE, which likely has long-term deal worked out already.

Pitt has matched the RFA offer sheet on Emmanuel Sanders. First RFA to get offer in 3 years

Not yet, but i find it strange they signed him to just a 1-year deal.

It sucks that I will have to hate him now. I doubt the Steelers match the offer with their current cap situation.

The Steelers are very unlikely to match the offer the Patriots made because they also need to save room for draft picks.

Sanders doesn't exactly fit my definition of small however. Standing six feet tall, and 200 pounds of sheer muscle? The dude is quick yeah, but he's also got some pretty decent vertical speed by NFL wide receiver standards IMO.

I don't blame Sanders for signing the offer sheet from the Patriots even if it's not for a lot more money. Because it forces the Steelers to match and give him more money (If they want to keep him)...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

He is listed as 5'11 180...

Have you seen the guy on the football field?

Kind of odd that it's only a 1 year deal. Unless there is a wink wink deal with the agent for an extension...
